About the Artist

Matthew Krousey received his BFA in ceramics from the University of Minnesota–Twin Cities in 2008. He served for 9 years in the military and is a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Krousey’s ceramic vessels and sculptures have been exhibited in the U.S. and internationally, including an exhibition at Sanbao Ceramic Institute in Jingdezhen, China. Krousey grew up and currently resides in rural Minnesota where the hardwood forest meets the vast expanse of the prairie. As a child, his days were spent roaming the woods, fishing the rivers, and exploring the fields. This landscape is the purpose for his artwork. He creates functional stoneware and porcelain pottery decorated with abstract imagery of our vanishing flora, fauna and native landscapes.
